2) EOP Graduation Gown Lending Project Application 


Program Launch

Thanks for your generous donations of caps and gowns! 
Thanks in large part to a gift from the University Section Club, the Graduation Gown Lending Project launched in Spring 2013 just in time for year end ceremonies. Alumni and community sponsors also provided support that resulted in over 100 cap and gowns being lent to students. We received more applications than we could accommodate so we still need your support! 
The GGLP has been featured in the UC Berkeley Newscenter and the SF Chronicle.
